    To use an image as background to your form:
    1.  Open your form in the Form Builder
    2.  Go to Setup & Embed > Preferences
    3.  Click "Form Styles" tab
    4.  In the background textfield, enter this code:

    url(http://www.yourdomain.com/images/styles/style1_bg.gif) no-repeat


    Replace the url with the url of the image that you want to use as background.

    Let us know if you need more help in implementing this solution.

    Yes, it should be like this code.

    url(http://www.yourdomain.com/images/styles/style1_bg.gif) no-repeat

    replace http://www.yourdomain.com/images/styles/style1_bg.gif with your own image URL.

    Thank you.
